UPDATE: Paul Ryan at YSU; Vindy's Dave Skolnick on MSNBC

  Skolnick talks to MSNBC

The Vindicator's David Skolnick was on MSNBC Saturday, Oct. 13, to discuss his views on this year's presidential  campaign in Ohio.

The Vindicator's David Skolnick was on MSNBC Saturday, Oct. 13, to discuss his views on this year's presidential campaign in Ohio.




U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, the Republican nominee for vice president, told a crowd at Youngstown State University today that he and Mitt Romney, the party’s presidential candidate, will fix the problems of job loss, dependency on foreign aid and oil, and health care, if elected.

Ryan, who lives in Janesville, Wis., said Youngstown reminds him of his hometown.

“We come from similar areas,” he said. “Please know we want to get these manufacturing jobs back here. We want to make sure that this is a country and a society where we are the envy of the world, where we’re No. 1 in manufacturing again, not second to China, like we are right now.”

Ryan spoke for about 17 minutes to the crowd of about 1,400 in YSU’s Kilcawley Center — including an overflow room of 200 who watched him on a giant-screen TV — and then answered six questions during a 42-minute town hall.

During his appearance, Ryan aggressively criticized Barack Obama, the Democratic incumbent.

“I’ve never seen a president so partisan as this one,” Ryan said.

He added that when Romney was governor of Massachusetts, he successfully worked with an overwhelmingly-Democratic state Legislature.

Ryan said you shouldn’t “demonize the other party,” and Romney was able to “find common ground” without compromising his principles.

Ryan campaigned in the heart of one of the most Democratic areas of Ohio, a key battleground state. Obama won Mahoning and Trumbull counties in 2008 over Republican John McCain by 20 percentage points.

But Republicans have not shied away from coming to the area recently. On Tuesday, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a prominent Romney surrogate, campaigned in Lordstown.

In a written response, Danny Kanner, an Obama campaign spokesman, said: “A PowerPoint can’t hide the simple truth: all Romney and Ryan are offering is the same failed policies that led to the crisis and punished middle class families in the first place.”

Ryan used some graphs and charts during his appearance at YSU.

After the YSU event, Ryan and his family visited the St. Vincent De Paul Society Dining Hall, next door to The Vindicator, to serve food to the poor, but breakfast time had passed. Instead, they washed dishes.

This Guy is A Speech Artist!

Paul Ryan?? Oh, C'mon...HE and HIS people prefer to shut down manufacturing throughout the U.S.! Now, HIS "twisted speech" is to SAVE and Bring Back Manufacturing? Please don't try to rub elbows and "act" like you're our (distant) "cousin" from Wisconsin---Paul Ryan is no-way near a family member, neighbor, friend, or any associate to represent Y-town. A FOE!

Again...OUT OF TOUCH, Typical blunder. Clueless. Ignorant .
He just says what you want to hear- Absolutely no concern with Middle Class. And frankly, Paul Ryan is Absolutely NOT concerned with Youngstown Manufacturing.

Paul Ryan and His Type of People are responsible For Sending Jobs, Businessess, and Manufacturing off to China way back--perhaps even BEFORE Pauly was born!!!

Don't let this guy influence one tiny bit.

I get such a chuckle out of people name calling and putting down a candidate instead of saying why the other candidate is better. So funny. That is why I'm Independent.

Ryan has alot of chutzpah going to St. Vincent dePaul. His budget is the ANTI-St.Vincent dePaul budget. On St.Vincent dePaul's website they have a number of position papers in direct opposition to Ryan and his Ayn Rand view of government. The "Vincentians" seek a mandated "living wage" and health care to all regardless of ability to pay, not Ryan's "you're on your own, good luck" philosphy (http://www.svdpusa.org/Resources/Voic...). Ryan at St. Vincent dePaul, what a joke.

1,600 isn't much of a crowd for a national candidate on a major party ticket. Doesn't look like Republicans are making much headway in the Valley.

Paul Ryan you were great to see in Ytown today! If all the people worried about the poor would donate their energies to the poor we would be in better shape.I missed the part in the bible were it said the rich should pay more in taxes to fund government programs to help the poor. NO, it says to help the poor and be charitable which is exactly what Mitt Romney has done.It also says though shall WORK 6 days and rest on the seventh.Great to see more UAW for Romney out today! Romney/Ryan 2012!

Obama takes credit for everything good that happens on his watch, HUH?

It just seems logical to me that if Obama can take credit for the Navy Seals killing Osama, he should also be held accountable for not having the State Department provide the appropriate amount of protection for our Ambassador and the three security people in Libya, seems to me!!!!
